  Thanks for reporting you success story and bugreport in one letter:)
  Yes, the screen is not refreshed when EXTERNAL command is invoked - it
should (so you found a bug) (something like stop_curses() and start_curses()
should surround 'system' in LYExtern.c - will see it tomorrow).

  It found out (thanks to MRC) that CERN-RULEs -based approach is much better
than EXTERNAL-based (less things to tweak:) - so I will focus on it - but anyway
functionality like original patch provided will be there.
